My fiancee and I decided to take a spontaneous trip to Bled and booked a room with a double bed at Vila Gorenka. Upon arrival we rang the bell and were greeted by an older gentleman who simply said hello, without a word we were walked into the kitchen "reception" where all three of us sat quietly. We handed him our passports and again he continued to say nothing which we felt was unusual and unwelcoming. We then were shown to our room and my fiancee and I exchanged looks about the low quality of the whole house and the room. As we began to unpack our belongings we heard from the room across the hall someone practicing violin, and throughout the rest of the day there seemed to be more rooms with violinist practicing. The owner never told us about the other rooms, or even said a word about it. These people play their instruments from 8 in the morning until 10 in the evening. On our first morning we were woken up by the violin playing rather unpleasantly. And around 11am while we were getting ready for our day (we slept in because the beds were very uncomfortable and couldn't sleep well) the owner tried to enter the room without even knocking and we yelled that we were inside and he left. After our day of fun we returned to have a quick shower and relax before leaving for the evening, again the owner tried to enter without knocking and his excuse was that "most of his guests are more open" but that's not normal. Overall the state of the building is dismal, the hospitality is minimal, and the whole experience has been rather bad. The only reason it gets a review higher than 1 star is that we were able to book a room rather last-minute.

Very handy to lake and town centre with off street parking. Friendly hosts, large bedrooms with cold water basin in old style house with tiny shared bathroom. We were lucky there was only one other person staying on our level as there could have been 12 people on our floor for one toilet and shower. The best amenity was the modern fully equipped shared kitchen outside the mainhouse with free tea and cereal.

Nice house in a quiet street, but just nearby the lake and the centre! The villa has a lovely separate kitchen. The only minus is That there's no airco or fan in the rooms, so it was quit hot at night.

The owner was rude since my arrival. He didn't give me a ground floor as requested because my desability, and even complain about getting the luggage upstairs. Actually he complained about everything! My room was very poorly decorated, nothing matched, with no air conditioner and too many used towels and sheets. The bathroom was shared and with a dirty bathtube. They expect the clients clean the toilet with baby wipes! So, stay anyplace else in Bled, but there!

My boyfriend and I loved our stay at the amazing Vila Gorenka - we stayed for 4 nights in the middle of August and were fairly late booking it. Having stayed at Bled before in an AirBnB, I already knew how expensive Bled can be for eating out - and I didn't realise at the time of booking that this place had a kitchen. The kitchen is outside the main building in a converted garage and fully equipped (currently no oven, just a hob), even with a dishwasher, available for all guests to use 24/7. Janez the owner even leaves out free cereal, milk and fruit for guests to help themselves for breakfast. There is seating inside the kitchen area and outside and the owner should take advantage of taking photos of the new kitchen ASAP as it is a real selling point - we managed to save lots of money whilst travelling by eating at the Vila instead of eating out all the time. The bedroom we had was a twin room and unfortunately because we were late to book we didn't have a lake view room but this didn't bother us too much. The room was spacious and had a sink (no soap though) with a mirror in - only negative thing with the room was that the bed squeaked every time you moved and so if you are a light sleeper then bring some ear plugs! We had a shared bathroom instead of an ensuite deal and so the toilet was one end of the corridor and the shower room was at the other. In our time being there, we never had a problem with using the shower/toilet when we wanted too and hence didn't find the shared bathroom thing a big deal. Without a doubt, the best thing about Vila Gorenka is the excellent location to the lake - within 2 minutes you are at the lake side!! This place currently has lots of negative reviews - but I couldn't recommend it highly enough, and when we return to Bled in the not so distant future, this place will definitely be our first port of call!
